National Nurses Week 2011

by Paul Martin -

From Nursing World:

Often described as an art and a science, nursing is a profession that embraces dedicated people with varied interests, strengths and passions because of the many opportunities the profession offers. As nurses, we work in emergency rooms, school based clinics, and homeless shelters, to name a few. We have many roles – from staff nurse to educator to nurse practitioner and nurse researcher – and serve all of them with passion for the profession and with a strong commitment to patient safety.

National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6, also known as National Nurses Day, through May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.

Be sure to thank your nurses!

    I’ll say CPR is one of the most important classes I’ve ever taken. Helped me clear the airway of a choking 7 month old about a week ago. I hope that everyone takes it

    ProCPR is one of the most important class anyone will ever learn especially if the storms and tornado, and other violent winds are continually taking innocent lives all across america.

      Thanks, Sherrie! We agree! Rescue skills are very necessary in these challenging times when weather is so unpredictable.
